HOW MUCH IS DELIVERY?

FREE for all orders with a goods total of $100 or more (includes signature delivery, a traceable consignment number and insurance).

A flat $8.95 delivery charge applies to orders under $100 (this charge includes signature delivery, a traceable consignment number and insurance).

Express Post next business day* delivery is offered for orders under 5kg. A flat $13.95 charge applies for this service.

(If your order exceeds 5kg, express post will not be offered as a delivery option during checkout).

*Next business day delivery applies to express post orders placed before 11:00 am ACST.  Express orders placed after 11:00am OR express orders being sent to a destination outside of the Australia Post express network will usually take more than 1 business day to arrive.

WHAT IF I AM NOT HOME AT THE TIME OF DELIVERY?

Only one delivery attempt will be made for ALL shipping. If no one is in attendance at the time of delivery, your parcel will be taken back to your local post office for safe-keeping and collection.

CAN I APPLY AN AUTHORITY TO LEAVE?

All parcels that leave Send A Toy require a signature on delivery.  An authority to leave without a signature can be applied, however, it will be at your own risk. In the event an authority to leave parcel is lost, missing or stolen, Send A Toy will not provide compensation.

IMPORTANT NOTE:  An Authority to Leave instruction can only be set by following the "Leave in a  Safe Place" link that is included in your parcel tracking email or  pending delivery text (sent to you by Australia Post once your parcel leaves Send A Toy). Requests for Send A Toy to add an authority to leave instruction on your behalf will be ignored.

WILL THE DELIVERY DRIVER PHONE AHEAD OF DELIVERY?

No. Send A Toy parcels are transited through the Australia Post Eparcel system and we are not able to request that drivers phone ahead of delivery. However, during checkout you will be given the option of linking a mobile phone number to your order to receive parcel tracking updates. If you opt to include your mobile number, you will receive an impending parcel delivery notification via SMS text.

IMPORTANT NOTE: Instructions left for Send A Toy requesting that we phone you just prior to delivery will be ignored.


CAN MY PARCEL BE DELIVERED TO A PO BOX?

Yes.

HOW LONG WILL DELIVERY TAKE?

Your order will be posted within 24 hours, excluding weekends and South Australian Public holidays. Delivery times vary depending on your location, refer below for further details. (Express post orders placed before 11:00am ACST will be dispatched same business day).

Our delivery standards apply to regular post orders from the time they leave Send A Toy and are based on Australia Post's delivery guidelines and our experience. Occasionally delays may occur as a result of our carrier for which we have no control over. In these circumstances Send A Toy will not be held liable for or provide compensation for the delay or any resulting inconvenience.

Disclaimer: occasionally delivery delays may occur as a result of our carrier, which we have no control over. In this instance a refund will be provided for the express delivery surcharge only (i.e. the difference between express and standard post).

I HAVE PROVIDED THE WRONG DELIVERY ADDRESS ... NOW WHAT?

Contact Send A Toy immediately as there is only a short window of opportunity to modify the address on a submitted order.

If your parcel has already been manifested - we can not change the delivery address. In this instance your parcel will usually be returned to us within 2 - 3 weeks.

Once your parcel arrives back at Send A Toy we can have it re-sent to a revised address. An $8.95 re-delivery fee will apply.  Alternatively you can cancel your order for a refund, less the actual freight charge that we incurred to post your order. If your order qualified for free delivery, the actual freight charge that we incurred to post your order will deduct from your refund. (Please note that Send A Toy also incurs a returned freight fee. This fee is absorbed by Send A Toy and not passed onto the customer).

If your parcel is accepted at the incorrect address and not returned to Send A Toy, unfortunately it can not be retrieved by Send A Toy or Australia Post.  Send A Toy will not provide a refund or compensation for the lost goods.

I LIVE IN ADELAIDE - CAN I PICK-UP MY PARCEL?

Sorry no, we do not offer a local pick-up service.

CAN I SHIP MY ORDER TO AN INTERNATIONAL ADDRESS?

Sorry no. Due to the risks and costs associated with international freight, effective from the 1st of February 2019 we no longer ship outside of Australia.  However, we gladly accept orders from international customers for delivery within Australia.

HOW DO I SEND MULTIPLE GIFTS TO DIFFERENT ADDRESSES?

Please place separate orders online or contact Send A Toy during our business hours to discuss your order requirements.

DO YOU DELIVER ON SATURDAY'S?

Typically our parcel's are not delivered on Saturday's and a Saturday delivery can not be specifically requested. However, during peak periods such as Christmas Australia Post may deliver on Saturday's in selected metro areas.

DO YOU USE RECYCLED PACKING MATERIALS?

Presentation is important to us, however, in an effort to reduce waste and keep your delivery costs to a minimum we often reuse cartons, bubble wrap and other packaging materials when sending parcels. We also source and re-use cartons from local businesses.
